The other day, Gal Smiley was looking at a placemat we have of all the Prime Ministers because she has to pick one for a school project.
(What, your house doesn’t have placemats with all the Prime Ministers on them?)
The Captain’s favourite Prime Minister is the lesser-known Sir John Abbott, because they share the same birthday.
(What, your kids don’t have a favourite Prime Minister?)
Lately the Captain has taken to referring to Abbott lovingly as “A Butt” because he’s 11 and that’s hilarious.
So they had this conversation:
Gal Smiley: I have to pick a Prime Minister for my project.
Me: That placemat is older and the current Prime Minister, Stephen Harper, isn’t on there.
The Captain: Are you going to do A Butt? [snickers]
Gal Smiley: No, I’m thinking of doing the current Prime Minister.
The Captain: How do you know I wasn’t referring to the current Prime Minister?
Me: Ha ha ha ha ha! AWESOME.
(What, your kids don’t make jokes about current Canadian politics?)
